Blurry, just like my eyes.
That’s right, it’s yet another post about No Man’s Sky! I have been playing it rather a lot so of course I’m going to post about it a lot. That, and it is awesome.
Here are some great, and weird, things I’ve seen on my travels. Firstly, some gorgeous landscapes, where almost any screenshot is a work of beauty:
When the moon hits the sky…
A very welcoming entrance to Hell
This was a great planet. Quiet, nothing to kill me, purple trees
“Oh yes, we go to Aspen every year!”
Then there are some of the bizarre creatures I’ve stumbled across (and in some cases, spent hours searching for) on my journey through the stars:

Won’t somebody think of the children?
Presented mostly without comment, here is a gallery of some of the more suspect rock formations, flora and creatures I’ve so far come across in the wonderful game that is No Man’s Sky.
Stop giggling. This is serious business. Remember: if it’s rude, it’s you that thought it was, not me.
Yes, it’s gold.
Maybe see a doctor.
Hitler only had one.
Then there’s this instruction:
And finally, this creature. Oh my.
You know when you get a phrase in your head and have to make a picture of it otherwise it might never leave? No?
Oh. Just me then.
You may recall that something I collect is screenshots of toilets in the games that I play. For reasons I don’t fully understand, of course, but who doesn’t like a good WC in any game they happen to be playing? It’s the best bit.
I archive all the bogs I discover over on
Tumblr, and here are a few I’ve found since my last post on the subject.
Firstly, some frustratingly inaccessible lavatorial areas, like this one from Grim Fandango. Manny can go in, but sadly, we can’t follow. Also, Manny is a skeleton so not sure how his waterworks, er, works.
Following on from bogs-you-can’t-enter in Persona 4 Golden, the very Persona-like Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE on the Wii U has a similar scenario:
Oh why must you tease us? See also the definitely not Sonic game Freedom Planet:
And this from Animal Crossing Amiibo Festival, where at one point in the game you clean these toilets, but you can never actually use them. Tch.

You know the drill. “Can I help?” popup on a website, so they get asked Shenmue questions. Usually they just disconnect. Did King of Servers?
Not right away, no. But still disappointing to just chuck me off. Boo!
Set eyes to “stunned”, Mr Worf.
Miitomo photos are a wonderful thing, even when you’re not trying to create any photos yourself and just rely on the app generating them randomly. Here’s a gallery of some of those from my private collection.
I created this one
Thinking about something tasty
Not sure what I was thinking here
Come at my toast, bro

Nope, no idea
